It’s that crazy time of year again where your first world problems consist of things like “My feet hurt from comic-con” or “The food in Hall H is terrible” or maybe “There aren’t enough pokestops around the convention!” This may be my 17th-ish SDCC, but it feels just as new and exciting as the first. Unlike other cons where I might spend most of my time cosplaying, this is the con where my focus is about exclusives, panels, checking out what’s new on the floor, and just having a great time with friends. Of course, there will still be cosplay. With all that’s happened this year, I’m in a very “YOLO” mood these days and decided to finally cosplay a character I have always wanted to be, but never had the guts to – Psylocke. I’ll be wearing the X-Men Apocalypse version, which I love because of the added armor. And with my recent hair cut, I also threw in a last minute Jubilee, roughly based on the Kotobukiya figure, but with some ’80s elements. It’s gonna be a fun time so I hope to see you there!
There’s something very geometric and almost mathematical about laser cut clothing. Maybe it’s the precision, symmetry, or just the aesthetic of it, who knows. I just know that my logical mind loves to wear it! I recently picked up this laser cut skirt and immediately knew it would go perfectly with my new Rey shirt from Her Universe. If you haven’t seen their latest line of tees, be sure to check them out! I love that they all have a more feminine design aesthetic and this one even reminds me of a postcard that I might receive from someone on Jakku that might say “Hi from Jakku! BB-8 says hello!” ^.^ Continue reading
If you’re a clothing addict and avid shopper like myself, then you’ve probably noticed some new trends popping up for spring/summer. For me, I’ve been seeing a ton of off-the-shoulder tops and dresses, midi culottes and skirts, the continuing trend of crop tops, and last but not least, the bomber jacket. I know that trends come and go, but sometimes there’s certain ones that really catch my eye.
Every year I get asked what I want to do for my birthday and every year, I completely dread that day. I hate the attention, the pressure of having a “great day” and I have never enjoyed being sung to. Usually I go into hiding around this time and thank goodness for Memorial Day because my birthday usually falls over that 3 day period, but this year I decided to really get away from things by spending my bday at Disneyland! With all I have to celebrate, I was feeling incredible grateful to be present, healthy, and I couldn’t wait to just go there and do whatever, eat whatever, and have a good time.
You know what today is… it’s Star Wars Day! Sure, you could celebrate like I am here by wearing your favorite Star Wars item, but with Star Wars practically everywhere these days, you’re bound to find something new to buy or else something fun to do in order to take today to the next level. Lucky for you, I’ve been keeping my eye out for worthy Star Wars events and put a list together just for the occasion. May the 4th be with you! Continue reading
With all that’s happened to me these past 6 months or so, it’s crazy to think about what I was doing just one year ago. I was definitely at a high, having just gotten accepted into the Her Universe Fashion Show and I had just started material shopping for my “She is Groot” dress. Finishing that dress was quite a milestone for me and it’s crazy to think how much has happened since then. This past weekend was coincidentally the deadline to submit designs for the 2016 Her Universe Fashion Show and a lot of people have asked me if I submitted another design. Well, the short answer is no, BUT that doesn’t mean that I won’t be making something fun to wear to the show anyways! This week also marks the release of Her Universe’s new Force Awakens collection, Continue reading
Call me old or call me uncool, but I’m completely not in tune with the music scene. I guess at some point in your adult life, you stop listening to new music, start saying stuff like “I can’t believe kids are listening to this stuff” and stick to music you listened to when you were younger. All things considered, I still somehow knew (thanks to social media) that Coachella was happening this past weekend. My friends have told me that Coachella is like the San Diego Comic Con of music – a huge festival, lots of exhibitors, and just like how people make the craziest costumes for SDCC, so is the fashion scene of Coachella.
